Pom Pom Clothespin Magnets {tutorial}

Happy Friday everyone! 

Today I'm going to show you how I made these:



To make the pom pom....

Step One: Cut out circles from your fabric of choice. (I used an Advil bottle to trace my circles.) You can fold the fabric a few times so that you don't need to cut out each individual circle. I use about 20 circles for each pom pom.

On a small circle of felt, begin adding your circles, one at a time. You fold each circle in half, then in half again before you glue it to the piece of felt.

Step Two: Add next circle beside & add extra dabs of glue if necessary.




Step Three and Step Four: Keep adding the circles in layers, until the pom pom looks full & you are happy with the result.




To finish making these clothespin magnets, I simply added the pom pom to one side of my clothespin, then added the magnet on the other side, using my glue gun.




I added one to the top of my sister's gift for her bridal shower recently.




These would be cute gift idea as well. A set with a few different colours that coordinate would be a great gift idea for a teacher, sister, mom, etc!




Happy Crafting!!

  10. These are really cute. I had done some headbands with a similar technique, but it's really cute to put them on a clothes pin. Jodi @ www.meaningfulmama.com
